FUN TIMES AND LOTS OF SILLINESS IN ATLANTIC CITY

The Sports Diva is on another 30 Plus Teams Tour.

This time I’m going to the original place to gamble, Atlantic City , New Jersey .

Shoutout to Ken Dowell from Off The Lease for correctly guessing where I was going,

I’m not going to a sporting event as there aren’t any professional sports teams in town but you can place a bet on sports teams in United States and Canada, and it’s all legal.

That’s not what I’m here for, though .

I’m here with family members for some rest and relaxation .

Some money might be won and a lot of money will be lost.

We’re even staying at the same hotel that we stayed at last year.

Of course, I’m bringing you along with me for all the Atlantic City craziness .

I’m here for three days, so who knows what kind of craziness is gonna hsppen.

Can’t wait, God willing.

Here’s to some fun times in Atlantic City .

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE?

Once again,the Sports Diva is going away somewhere, and it’s time for the ever popular what’s in my suitcase ?

I’m going away for a few days for some sun and fun with the family.

No sporting event is going to be happening on this 30 Plus Teams Tour but I will still be rocking team sport shirts and hats because that’s just how the Sports Diva rolls .

Where’s the 30 Plus Teams Tour taking me this time?

As usual , you have to guess.

They’ll be sun, fun, lots of water and enough fun to keep three ladies of a certain age very happy and it doesn’t take a year and a day to get there .

Check out what’s in my suitcase as you try to guess where my 30 Plus Teams Tour takes me this time.

My little blue backpack with wheels. My guys Gleyber and Julian are coming along for the craziness .

My black skirt and black top because you know how people here in New York City love wearing dark colors .

Repping my teams because I am that Team Sports Apparel Fashionista .

Two T shirts. One from an ex coworker , the other a Nashville Predators shirt from the NHL Store , flip flops for walking around nasty ass bathroom floors, black pants, and a flowered cover up.

Packing cubes, which I can’t seem to live without now. Red sunglasses , sandals, white pants, two shirts , shorts and my new gift from my auntie , a selfie stick.

This is a quick trip, so no big suitcase.

Have you guessed where my next 30 Plus Teams Tour is taking me?

If you haven’t, you’re going to have to wait to see.

In the meantime, enjoy this edition of What’s In My Suitcase .

GETTING TO KNOW APPLE HOSTELS AGAIN

I decided at the last minute that since it was July 4th coming up, why not do a 30 Plus Teams Tour of the City of Brotherly Love even if it’s two days?

I actually just stayed for one day, July 4th until July 5th since Philadelphia is less than two hours from New York City .

Besides, hockey season is less than two months away, so I can spend a longer time in Philly then.

You can’t say the Sports Diva doesn’t have her priorities in order right?

I hadn’t been to Philadelphia in more than two years, which is surprising since it’s so close by.

I used to stay at the hostel that’s in the Historical Area of Philadelphia known as Center City, Apple Hostel.

This hostel is part of the Hostel International organization , so if you’re a member like I am, you can get a discount on your stay.

Apple Hostel is located at 33 Bank Street close to Independence Hall .

You can take a Greyhound bus or even better, the Megabus which goes to 6th Street, across from Independence Hall.

You can walk down to Bank Street from there.

If you have a lot of luggage, Megabus is the way to go

When I first stayed here, there was one hostel building .

Now, there’s two as the reception area has located to the the modern building across the street , known as the “West Wing”.

The rooms in the hostel are in the old building , known as the ” EastnWing”.

There’s no elevator in the building , which has three floors, so don’t look for one,

I stayed on the second floor in the 18 bed female dorm .

Each bed has outlets, a reading lamp, and a privacy curtain, which I don’t remember them having before.

The lights go out at 11pm and on at 10am, but if you have to get out before that time, just try not to disturb your fellow hostelmates.

Everyone is given a key card to get in out not just the hostel front door, but the door to your dorm or private room.

There’s also a code to get into your room.

While many of the hostels have free breakfasts every day, Apple Hostels only does on weekends , and that’s just cereal and oatmeal .

Since this area is filled with restaurants and stores , finding a place to eat breakfast isn’t a problem .

While the East Wing still has a kitchen, the main kitchen has moved to the new building , which looks like something out of one of those fancy interior magazines or commercials.

If your own 30 Plus Teams Tour brings you to the City of Brotherly Love , Apple Hostel should be the place to stay.

Believe me, you won’t be disappointed .
